April 25th-30th

May 1, 2016




Monday 25th



Take 15 minutes to build to today’s 1-RM Strict Press


20 min AMRAP

6 Handstand Push-Ups
12 Kettlebell Swings 

30 Double-Unders

Today is the "PACING" day. You should aim to find a pace from the very beginning that you can pretty much maintain for the entire AMRAP. (If the 1st round takes you 3 mins to complete, but the 3rd round takes 6 mins to complete, something went terribly wrong. If anything, your LAST round should be the fastest.)

If possible, wear a wrist watch with a stopwatch on it so you can track your split times.
